BFA Thesis Research
Course No. BMA 405 Credits: 3.0
Faculty Thomas Nowacki
This course is designed to act as a summative experience for the student. The final BFA Thesis Project will be defined by the student and work with a level of professional collaboration. The requirements for the BFA Thesis will be to solve and effectively visually communicate a medical or scientific problem. Integration of outside resources, research effective collaborator/expert communication, professional practices, presentation (oral and written) and documentation of the process of the specific yearlong project will be expected to determine successful BFA candidacy. The choice of media and concept will be evaluated on its appropriateness for communicating the message and solving the Thesis problem. The project visualization will be student driven; content needs will be determined by the student and the research/collaboration. The emphasis in this course will be on the conceptual development of the content accuracy/relevance and its realization through the design process. The process will fully address research, expert collaboration, target audience, time spent, visual communication problem and successful execution of completed production. The goal will be effective visual communication with a strong, aesthetic, fully considered project, which integrates several layers of media. The final work will have the following: ÊA two sentence (maximum) Thesis Statement, a designed/written proposal, research paper, business oriented documentation, a digital presentation to explain the work, artist statement/project scope statement, and the final project depicting the solution for the BFA Exhibition. Offered fall.
